Shark Announces "One-Time" Return To Golf, Comparisons To Hogan's Comeback To Never Begin

Nothing conjures up images of Ben Hogan's return following the accident like a big time, one-off comeback. Well, that is, until you hear it's the retired (who knew?) Greg Norman returning to the PNC Father-Son.

I'll let the goosebumps subside before we continue.

Note the matching Shark-branded workout shirts for the big video announcement that was cut with some slick 1986 music and production touches. Think Magnum PI meets Body by Jake:

Excited to make a one-time return to professional golf with my son @gregnormanjr - see you at the @pncfatherson

Geoff,
I've always thought that you were a little tough on Norman, given all his success on the course.
After this latest video, let me just say, I was wrong. Really wrong.

Just think, this is the man who is going to save the game and bring it into the new century. How lucky are we.

At least his torso was covered.

Body by Jake, Christ that's funny.

Cant wait for Greg to announce they're also entering a father-son chainsaw competition.

Thought it was the dude from Back to the Future.

Thanks, Geoff. Back to back pieces on two of the biggest pricks in the world--Trump and Norman--. Gotta run now. The carpet cleaner guy is here to get out the stain in my rug after I spit my coffee seeing this this morning...

I've played with him. He was a hell of a player but one of about 3 people I would be glad if I never played with again!

OMG
Wow and know he has the son doing his antics. Too many men with power and fame who've fallen off the ladder.

One of my all time favorite players. Sadly, he has let his ego run wild. Hard to respect what game he is playing now. The guy was one of the best for a long time, and his shirtless ventures, etc make him just seem silly. What i don't understand, is why GS.Com keeps posting this stuff...any publicity is good publicity is the saying, Janet Jackson style, I guess.

No huge gut and a stupid goatee and a shaved head and wraparound sunglasses and flip flops and cargo shorts ... like most of the world's male population. I'll give him that.

Not sure why, but this was the first thing that came to mind watching this video:

OMG....speechless. Reminds me of my nieces putting on an acting show for the grownups.

Jumping Jacks??!! Lol!!!

Pitchouts locked and loaded. No comeback.
